Mexico cont...

On Saturday night we went to one of the theater shows that they had each evening. I saw that it said participation show and though "hmm, maybe we shouldn't go, don't want to get pulled up on stage". What are the chances?? I ended up on stage thinking "what on earth have i gotten myself into"! I hate being in front of people, let alone on a stage having to do a sexy walk with a book on my head, learn a choreographed dance and repeat it and run into the audience and kiss as many men on the cheek as i could in 1 minute (i did win that one with 26 by the way, i don't know if that is something to be proud of) Johnny's face was hurting when i got back down off stage because he had been laughing so hard for so long. The pictures he took were very dark but here is one of me running around for one minute...

We could eat at the buffet breakfast lunch and dinner and then we also had 3 dinners at the fancier restaurants in the resort. We went to the Italian one on Sat. It was very hard to understand what you were ordering. I seemed to do well with my picking, johnny had a little trouble in the salad picking department...

it was 4 course dining and they just kept bringing food. this was my soup that freaked me out a little only because of the color. (i am a very picky eater and rely a lot on the looks of food to deter me) I tried so many things that looked "questionable" this week. By the way the soup was fantastic, it was a spinach soup and i ate the whole bowl! :)

we read a lot!

these animals were everywhere around the resort. they were so cute.

had to do a feet on the beach picture

i missed my kids obviously, i of course completely enjoyed ou time alone but had a little meltdown one night after seeing a little girl raegan's age...just felt so far away from them

loved the beach beds...

only things about a vacation alone together is that you don't get many pictures together unless you snag someone to take one of you which we did every now and then


we walked or ran on the beach every morning except for one while we were there. i have run on beaches before but this one was particularly hard to run on because the sand was so soft

on Sunday it rained...all...day...long! They were saying there might be three days of it. We were feeling a little depressed.

we hung out in the lobby and played cards, we took naps, we ate, we read while it rained and rained and rained...

it rained sunday and then monday morning and then that was it...the sun came out and it was beautiful once again!

i went barefoot for a day and a half because the walkways were so slippery!

Makes me laugh out loud at you being the one picked for that show. I ducked and then the whole time I was SO thankful I hadn't gone up there. I kept telling Damon how I would have DIED doing the stuff they made you do.

It also makes me laugh thinking about you two ordering food. Did you go to the one upstairs that looked out over the ocean? That place was the funniest for food selection. I think I ended up with oysters.

Yeah, i did just about die, i was sitting up there thinking "i wonder if i can sneak off this stage, it's fairly dark in here, they may not recognize me the rest of the week!??" :)

At that restaurant i saw something that said chicken and ordered it to be safe...it was pretty good. Oysters, that is hilarious!
